I would think the unlimited PTO was a bigger slap in the face.

You’ve been a staff 2 for 2.5 years? If you don’t get promoted to senior by this year, you might as well go because it’s not looking good. I’ve seen someone stay a staff 2 for like 4 years because the firm didn’t want to promote them but also didn’t want to fire them.

Isn’t it etiquette to get someone flowers before f*cking them?

Maybe just as most people here seem to think they’d be better elsewhere, management has decided better staff are currently elsewhere and they’d like help recruiting them. It also looks like they’re willing to pay for more vetted staff, which could be another sign that recruiting is falling short.

It’s possible that recruitment has tightened some and made it necessary to add another layer of verification before hiring. Replacements costs are expensive, especially if a company continually cycles through people who can’t succeed in the positions.

What are the ultimate consulting exit apps (I.e? specific role/team & industry) for the non-technical consultants? Looking to understand the exit opps available that: 1. Pay in line with MBB or exceeds (YOY raise is also in line with career and pay progression at MBB) 2. Have reasonable hours, at most 9-7 so I can pick up some hobbies and have a personal life 3. Have great global brand/prestige that will make me as desirable exiting consulting now vs exiting that company in the future

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
